Hey, I'll go for that! More brainpower available for figuring out how to best compensate for his handspan which could encompass a twelfth I've heard. Ever notice it's always the note most indespensable to the harmony that is the one you can't reach?   jim O):^)       _______________________________ Do you Yahoo!?

Since it = will be a residence organ, and space is at a bit of a premium, I certainly = don't need a honkin' big 16' bourdon.......I just want 12 stopped pipes for a common bass 16' octave.   And what would we call such a rank.....Stopped String 16'? Can't = imagine it would be very stringy, though, as a stopped rank.   Maybe I could make it out of PVC pipe....I've heard of that being done.   BTW, I've often thought it would save some space and weight in small = organs if, say, the bottom octave of the 16' stop was a "unit" manufactured out = of two sheets of (high quality) plywood with dividers sandwiched between, fitting into routed slots to form the side walls of individual pipes. = Two adjacent pipes would share a common side wall. Upper ends could be cut = to length, and mouths could be formed in the usual way; feet perhaps going = into the back side of the pipe bottom. Such a unit would probably be strong enough to serve as the back or side of a small organ case. Have I just reinvented the wheel? Has it been done?     Dennis Steckley Lover of Cats, Pipe Organs & 1940-65 Sewing Machines     ****************************************************************** "Pipe Up and Be Heard!"
